We aim to keep tenants and landlords happy in equal measure, as a satisfied tenant is the key to longer tenancies, premium rents and fewer void periods for our landlord clients.

Why use Garrett Whitelock?
Dedicated property manager
When you appoint Garrett Whitelock you will be assigned a dedicated property manager who will get to know your property inside out in order to take active care of your asset.
Full compliance for total peace of mind
We will ensure that your property complies with all the latest regulations affecting the rental market. We can organise any necessary certification that may be required, such as an Energy Performance Certificate and a Gas Safety Certificate, as well as check any potential tenants' right to rent and ensure that your property has a licence to rent from the local council (if required), giving you complete peace of mind.
No upfront fees
Landlords using our full property management service pay no fees upfront. Instead, our competitive charges are deducted from the rent on a monthly basis to help with cash flow.
We will conduct a thorough inspection of your property on a regular basis to ensure any problems and maintenance issues that your tenants have failed to tell us about are nipped in the bud before they become more serious.
When your property becomes available to rent, we will proactively find new tenants willing to pay the optimum rent as quickly as possible to minimise the risk of a void period occurring between tenancies. We will also handle all the necessary paperwork, from rigorous reference checks, preparation of new tenancy agreements, inventory checks at the beginning and end of a tenancy, deposit registration and ongoing rent collection.
No hassle guaranteed
At Garrett Whitelock we have an emergency helpline so tenants and landlords alike can contact us 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, to ensure that any problems are dealt with quickly and efficiently.
Repairs at very competitive prices
Despite the many benefits, some landlords may be wary about signing up for full property management, fearing over-inflated repairs and maintenance charges. However, at Garrett Whitelock we work with a trusted team of fully insured local contractors, including electricians, plumbers and maintenance experts, and ensure that the prices you pay are extremely competitive. In fact, in most cases they work out significantly cheaper than if a landlord was to arrange the work themselves. Our commitment to fair pricing is the reason why such a high proportion of landlords choose to use our full property management service year after year.
My Property File
One of the many things that sets our full property management service apart is that all landlords have access to our unique online service, My Property File. This enables them to oversee everything relating to a specific rental property at the touch of a button, from the tenancy agreement, details of any tenant communications, recent repairs, inspection reports and so on. As a landlord, you can also see a detailed picture of all income and expenditure relating to your property to assist with budgeting and accounting on a monthly and annual basis.
